Duplicate Finder - Only between 2 Volumes

Post by amsgh12 »

Im on Version 1.5.0.1295a (x64).

When i right click size column it shows me duplicates from 2 different drives. But if there are duplicates within the drive itself c: it also shows them. How do i only display the duplicated in drive c: and d:? The search needs to check any and all subfolders but the match only can be between drive c & d. All others are ignored.

Any ideas?

Please try the following:
  • Change your search to:
    c: distinct:size
  • Select all results (Ctrl + A) and press Ctrl + Shift + C to copy all filenames to the clipboard.
  • Change your search to:
    filelist1:
  • Hold down Ctrl and left-click the filelist1: text in the search box.
  • This will open the file list slot editor.
  • Press Ctrl + V to paste your filenames from the clipboard.
  • Click OK.
  • Change your search to:
    d: distinct:size
  • Select all results (Ctrl + A) and press Ctrl + Shift + C to copy all filenames to the clipboard.
  • Change your search to:
    filelist2:
  • Hold down Ctrl and left-click the filelist1: text in the search box.
  • This will open the file list slot editor.
  • Press Ctrl + V to paste your filenames from the clipboard.
  • Click OK.
  • Change your search to:
    filelist1:|filelist2: dupe:size

I'll look into making this easier, maybe with a simple search like: dupe:size;!rootname

Everything 1.5.0.1320a adds a Root Name property.

dupe:size;!rootname will now work as expected.
